Author Topic: How to spot a scam?  (Read 2067 times)

Offline james_irish

Hi guys, I'm a little new to this and just wondering how to put spot scammers or ungenuine ads on AW? Are those girls without reviews scamming or is this not always the case? Also, could anyone provide any helpful for tips for a first timer as making contact etc.

Thanks a lot:)

It's certainly not always the case that no reviews = scammer or even lots of positive reviews = outstanding. With reviews, I tend to look at who else the guys have seen, the fakes are usually easy to spot in that a girl might have lots of positive reviews, but all from guys with only one feedback themselves!..bit of a giveaway. Also, people tend to write in the same style..so look out for reviews seemingly from different people, but with repeated use of key words/phrases. The more reviews you read, the more you'll get to recognise this.

With the girls profile, it's always a good idea to do a reverse image search on Google so you can at least know that you're NOT going to be seeing a famous USA porn star for £60 an hour in a shithole in Dagenham. I think the general rule of "if it seems too good to be true, it is" is a good one.

As far as making contact, all the genuine girls I know HATE messages like "r u free now bb". Introduce yourself, say something about what you like and what you would like out of a meeting, suggest an actual date and time that you are willing to commit to and make sure you actually read the profile!!. Do not put booking requests through without first having email/phone contact with the girl. Be nice and polite (I'm sure some would say "fluffy" :D) and you'll probably have a good time if you've chosen carefully.

Thanks a lot for taking the time to write:) I really appreciate it. All that you've written makes total sense. I hadn't thought about checking the reviewers themselves, but it's a great tip:) And thanks for the tips as regards introducing oneself :)

checking the validity of some-one's feedback is often worthwhile. take this girl ...

has a positive from some-one called George White, who has +10 feedback himself, so at first glance looks kosher. Look a bit closer and you will see that all his feedback, where the lass hasn't retired already, is from girls who work at the same flat. Maybe he lives next door and has never ever been tempted to punt elsewhere, but I'd be a bit wary of taking much comfort from feedback he leaves.

Cheers for that:) Much appreciated! Another good piece of advice. :D

That's good advice from Hendix. Particularly the advice about checking the feedback of the guys too.
Also beware of young girls who cannot write a profile in proper English and offer all services but have zero feedback. Common sense really.
I don't usually see any girl now who does not appear to have good feedback from several guys and also gives feedback on them.
What's a reverse google search I wonder?

Sorry, I wasn't very clear on that part!..I actually use http://www.tineye.com/   if you enlarge an AW pic and right click on the bit that starts with "http" and ends with "jpg"..paste that into tineye and it'll tell you if the picture already exists on the internet (as a model or similar)..I think chrome has an extension for tineye that just lets you right click on the picture directly.

Thanks Hendrix that should prove very interesting.

I see you gave a subtle warning in your Feedback Only comment.

George White's feedback looks as if it has all been written by George White himself - look at the style of the different reviews.

Thanks to the OP for this really interesting and useful post.  I have only been punting since April so will respectfully put what I have learned up for review by the others here.

Having been victim of bait and switch on two occassions - one I fell for, one I avoided - I am now wary of AW profiles without a recognisable face pic. Let me be clear this does not mean that I would not punt a girl without a face pic.  Rather, I want want to see some good reviews from people I trust on UKpunting before going ahead; this profile of a very nice vanilla punt recommended by Panel999

https://www.adultwork.com/1992020 or https://www.adultwork.com/blonde%5Fhotty%5F

proves the rule - you can find a great punt without a face pic but it pays to exercise due caution and do your research. It takes a long time and a lot of reading to build up a picture of who is who on a site.  I have been concentrating on UK punting for the last three months and now know some of the people.

My big learning, detailed here, https://www.ukpunting.com/index.php?topic=13544.msg207739#msg207739 was the value of the advice from some of the guys on the forum here; if something doesn't seem right with a punt be careful and *most important of all* be prepared to walk as you go through the door. 

And there are some I am still trying to work out.  So, for example I am still trying to work out how to make sure that you actually get the services described.  particularly doing an exhaustive check of oall the stuff you might want before you hand over the case *without* killing the vibe is not something I have worked out yet. 

I will be following this post and look forward to learning as well as sharing.

Again this does not necessarily mean it'll be a scam but I started to be very cautious if a profile has only professional studio photographs.
I work in the creative arts, and photoshop is VERY powerful, the two or 3 times I went for a girl with studio pics only it was always a slight disappointment. Not all bad experiences, it's just that there is a chance shes 30 percent ish less pretty in real life.

Or has a giant tatoo of a panda bear, that stretches over her entire back -actually happend and it's a bit wired if you got to look at a panda gnawing away on bamboo while taking a girl doggy;)

take this profile for exa=mple https://www.adultwork.com/ViewProfile.asp?UserID=2054264 no feedback no verification pic, no gallery just 3 very hot looking studio pics +120 ph -not for me.  I have not seen this girl so maybe, maybe I am wrong, but in my experience nobody looks that perfect.

similar here https://www.adultwork.com/ViewProfile.asp?UserID=1877758 she's got goof feedback and I'm sure she might provide a good service. But dress size 14 and everything on her pics looks like it's a lot less and on an 18 year old. Again I've not seen her but personally I'd find it hard to believe that she'd turn out exactly like her pics in the flesh

Here however https://www.adultwork.com/ViewProfile.asp?UserID=1682137 some professional / semi professional pics mixed with pics where you can tell that they have been taken in a hotel room with a flash. If you like what you see on those chances are you won't be let down when you meet her in the flesh

another thing is, limit your search if you look for girls, the least first thing I do on the search form is check the following,

-dislike bareback -no brainer
-available today -it costs a bit of money to be displayed as available so you know whoever did this cares at least a tiny bit
-pictures
-viewable ratings
-logged in within the last week or two weeks -not a 100% but with a bit of common sense you can tell if a girl is actually using her own profile or if it was just set up once and then never used again.

also check the 'accessing from' on the girls profile page. A girl from London should not be accessing from Hungary besides when her profile says she is on holiday and she's hungarian.

all the above are not 100% but with what the others have said and a bit of common sense you should be able to weed out most of the bad ones.

good luck

I think some-one's concentration lapsed in this hot weather. George's latest feedback from someone called daisy morgen

"Absolutely fantastic service! Daisy is an amazing, fun loving lady. I was knackered after work but she made me relax and rejuvenated. Highly recommend her."

George my old mate, when inventing feedback for Daisy, don't accidently leave it for yourself!!!!   :lol:
